Christovam moves from rural northern Brazil to a former Austrian colony in the south to work in a milk factory. As one of few dark-skinned people in town, he is met with threats and racist prejucides by locals but finds solace in an abandoned house which seems to have a mind of its own. Upon moving in, Christovam discovers that the house is materializing his own memories – and slowly driving him insane. Seductively atmospheric and surreal, MEMORY HOUSE is a dark fairytale of a modern-day Brazil haunted by its colonial past.
